NEWSFLASH – Big Minis’ Online Midsummer Magic Sensation

Dan TP and Rob NS were delighted when well over 100 children joined them on Sunday 21st June for their online party!

With so many strong entries for the Collage of Cakes, it was impossible to call any overall winners, but our First Team Captain Matt Poole, asked us to point out:

  • Two of the prettiest – simple lilies from Ava and Thomas Kelly and the red rose of England Rugby from Arlo and Zac Reeves.
  • Three of the sportiest – GRFC cupcakes from the Marriott sisters and from Tien and Kai Tsang and our wonderful shield from James and Mia Larke.
  • What had to be one of the funniest – a burger cake from George and Issy Wheeler.

With so many children taking part and all having given up so much this summer to help keep people safe, Heads of U6 Simon and Magdelena Foulkes took to the road to give out Lockdown Hero Awards to every child they could reach in the run up to the party. All family snaps will be shared with our Collage – here’s a taster of some of those that made us smile:

Our full Collage will be published in July, along with pre-season and in-season opportunities for families to come into the club and sign the hardcopy – but in the meantime, Dan and Rob would like to thank:

  • Matthew Garrett, Member of the Magic Inner Circle with Gold Star – for donating his time to run our party;
  • John Hines, Ezieprint – for donating our Lockdown Hero Awards;
  • Steve Hunt, Cook – for donating summer pudding prizes; and
  • All at Dentons Wealth – for their very kind donation of £10 to the Shooting Star Chase Childrens’ Hospices Coronavirus Emergency Appeal for every Minis family that joined in.

Plus a HUGE thank you to Jo for her organisational awesomeness and Matt Poole for visiting so many families!
